douglas88 sent this one. Fuck yeah. 4% malt liqour. a new stlye. session malt liquor, boom! Nose of grain, green apple, corn, kind of subdued and pleasant more or less. Golden pour, nice head and lace. Flavors of grain bread green apple, subtle malt liquor notes all put together without the booze. Drinkability is very high, i like this.

Hello.
The following tale of alien encounters is true. And by true, I mean false.
It’s all lies. But they’re entertaining lies. And in the end, isn’t that the real truth?
The answer is: No.

Oh, the elusive 4% high gravity malt liquor! What a perversity. 24 ounce can from Dans Market. I contacted Miller and confirmed the 4% ABV, but no listing on the can. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. A sweet bready malt nose. Overly carbonated. A smooth and fairly clean and light malt forward beer with some light adjuncts. Surprisingly clean I thought. Not offensive but not good.

24oz can from the local grocery store
Appearance: Clear straw golden with a small white head that dissipates quickly, no head
Aroma: Light malts, corn and honey
Taste: Malts, corn, bready, and citrus
I tasted this and the 8.1 version side by side (both in shaker glasses). This version was much smoother and easier to drink, thin. But, that’s not what malt liquor is for I guess.

Can via Mr. R. Garbage, originally from the Hoffdoge? Thanks! Crystal clear golden. Faint whiff of dusty hops, neutral otherwise. Definitely watery, but clean beery flavor comes through. Nothing major wrong with this. The whole is better than the sum of its parts. Perhaps adding water minimizes the negative aspects of the whole malt likka thing, because other than being a little light on boost, this ones fine.

Gold pour with a big white head. Muted grape aroma, some dusty old hops, and a bit of grass. Flavor is really similar, a bit chemically really but nothing crazy. Just sort of muted and watery, a touch metallic. Oh well, still drank pretty good.

Rake courtesy of brew2or3. Yellow clear pour, no head. Sweet wet grain, corn. Light to medium bodhi. Taste the rarity.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2013 24oz can of label claimed "High Gravity Lager" whatever that means at 4% ABV (and 3.2% ABW). It makes me wonder what the Normal Gravity Lager must be like. This pours with a clear deep golden body that supported an initially tall white head. The aroma offers up corn sweetness, mild sweet apple fruity esters and then plain old vague sugary sweetness. The taste has a bit of prickly carbonation pushing up a faint lemon note right from the start. But mostly this has modestly sweet notes of apples, pears, corn and some grainy malts. This lacks the boozy chemical harshness that defines the style in my opinion.

Can courtesy of Dave. Thanks! Golden pour with a white head. Kind of a pool water aroma. Chlorine, water, corn, and some malt sweetness. A touch of banana and apple. There is a light sweetness to the flavor of corn, apple, and banana. Chlorine, water, and some grass, too.

Can courtesy of DeyHolla. Thanks Derek. Pours light gold with a white head. Bland, watery, and relatively inoffensive. Don’t hate the playa hate the game.
